Messiah's Experience Budgeting Money
By Messiah M
Last week Monday, MAP had a Big Group Meeting (BGM). [Opportunity Corps members from The Service Collaborative of WNY visited]. We learned about budgeting money.
We had fake professions and salaries. We also had fake responsibilities and homes. My pay per month was $4,100. I rented a one bedroom apartment and rent was $1,600. I also had a vehicle I paid $450 per month for and I attended college so that was another $100 per month.
One of the challenges I had with this was trying to keep money to feed myself or have money after costs. I also wanted to be sure I was spending a lot on unnecessary things.
All of my expenses were good except somethings I thought I wouldn't spend as much money as I did.
